Manchester United have agreed to sell Daley Blind to Ajax for a fee that could eventually rise to £18.5m.
Blind, 28, joined United from Ajax for £13.8m in 2014, when fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal was in charge.
Able to play in defence or midfield, Blind was a regular under Van Gaal – but his appearances have reduced since Jose Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford.
He did play in both the 2016 FA Cup final and the following year’s Europa League final victory over Ajax.
It is understood the Dutch club will pay an initial £14m to re-sign Blind on a four-year deal.
Blind is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder, left-back and centre-back for Manchester United and the Netherlands national team.
He is the son of former Ajax defender and former Netherlands national team manager Danny Blind.
Blind rose through the youth ranks at Ajax, becoming a regular after a loan to Groningen, and won four consecutive Eredivisie titles with the club.
In September 2014, he transferred to Manchester United for £13.8 million.
A full international since 2013, he has earned over 50 caps and was a member of the Dutch squad that finished third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
